need to delete temp folder for all user on domain at logoff
- would like to use group policy
- delete all files and subfolder in temp folder

del /s /q /f "%temp%\*.*"
I entered that in the cmd  -  it deletes all files but subfolders still remains(but files empty)
if I need to create a .bat file how would that .bat file look like and how would I add that to GPO to run every  time user logs off - to delete all files and subfolder in the temp folder

Try following batch script it will delete all sub directories inside Temp folder.
:: --- BATCH SCRIPT START ---
DEL /S /Q /F "%TEMP%\*.*"
FOR /D %%d IN ("%TEMP%\*.*") DO RD /S /Q "%%d"
:: --- BATCH SCRIPT END ---

Create the script and place it on a commonly accessible network share. Give it a .bat extension.

Open the group policy and select Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings --> Scripts --> Shutdown. Add a reference to the script.

I was able to use the preference to clear the contents of the C:\Windows\Temp fold but I do not think GP preference like variables like &userprofiles%
